Subject[PATCH v2 2/2] sysfs: provide more diagnostic info for kobject_add_internal() failures
From
Date
1/ convert open-coded KERN_ERR+dump_stack() to WARN(), so that automated
tools pick up this warning.

2/ include the 'child' and 'parent' kobject names. This information was
useful for tracking down the case where scsi invoked device_del() on a
parent object and subsequently invoked device_add() on a child. Now the
warning looks like:

kobject_add_internal failed for target8:0:16 (error: -2 parent: end_device-8:0:24)
Pid: 2942, comm: scsi_scan_8 Not tainted 3.3.0-rc7-isci+ #2
Call Trace:
